Watch the “KC Streetcar Stroll” Video, Attend the Public Meetings & Request Your Streetcar Ballot
Posted by Transit Action Network on May 12, 2012
Kansas City conducted a “Streetcar Stroll” from the River Market to Union Station on May 9th. About 35 participants were divided into small groups to walk the proposed 2.2 mile route with a guide to describe the proposed station areas and explain the proposed operating method for the streetcar. Video: Part 1 – Interviews with participants. Part 2 – Descriptions of the stations and the operations.
The city is holding three public meetings to explain the streetcar operation and answer questions. Kansas City wants voters in the proposed Transportation Development District (TDD) to understand the project.
The public meetings are from 4-7 p.m with brief presentations at 4:30, 5:30 and 6:30 pm.
Tuesday, May 15, Helzburg Auditorium, Central Library, 14 W. 10th Street
Wednesday, May 16, Atrium, Steamboat Arabia Museum, 400 Grand Boulevard
Thursday, May 17, Arthur Stilwell Room, Union Station, 30 W. Pershing Road
The initial ballot to create the TDD is a mail-in ballot, but you MUST request a ballot by May 22. No Request=No Ballot. So if you live in the proposed TDD, request your ballot today! Ballot requests will be available at the public meetings. Remind your transit friends in the proposed TDD to submit their ballot request.
